(About the different characters that she has played and how they are like her actual self) I try to bring elements of my own personality to every character I've played, but I think I'm pretty similar to the character I'm playing now (on the series The Class (2006)). The biggest departure would have to have been Freaks and Geeks (1999) Sara, who was this sort of subordinate and shy girl.
(About the role of Marjee Sorelli on WB's Related (2005)) She's just fun. I almost never get to play the one who has the good clothes and lots of boyfriends and is crazy and wild.
